Heywood Blue Plaque Ceremony

It was fantastic to see so many people turn out, including folk who are Thursday regulars at The Wishing Well Jam night.

The unveiling was carried out by Chris Hewitt, who had the vision for this whole thing, Peter Hook, Rev Mike Huck, still a great pioneer of music in and around Heywood, in fact probably the original rockin’ Vicar! And the Mayor of Rochdale.

Heywood, like many local Lancashire towns is still a great melting pot for music, hopefully these ceremonies and the links with John Peel will help to emphasise this.
